Read the signs

Yes, Islam is the Religion of Peace and its practicioners are ALL reasonable, peace-loving people--- not raving, ignorant, hate-filled, semi-human, sadistic scum--- no matter how they act. I read this post and almost hurled shrimp salad all over my keyboard.

One factor holding back donations appears to be a widespread belief that vacationers were swept away as a form of divine retribution for their un-Islamic or immoral lifestyles. That argument was heard in televised Friday prayers across the Arab world.

“We know that at these resorts, which unfortunately exist in Islamic and other countries in South Asia, and especially at Christmas, fornication and sexual perversion of all kinds are rampant,” one cleric, Sheik Fawzan Al-Fawzan, was quoted as saying. “The fact that it happened at this particular time is a sign from Allah."

Okay... let me get this straight... Allah has no problem with beheadings, the murder of children, suicide bombers and treating wimmen like chattel... but HE'LL BUST YOUR ASS for "fornication." Yeah. Right. Makes perfect sense to me.

Cleric, go fornicate yourself --- and fuck Allah while you're at it, too.


I was afraid using that three-syllable word I used in place of "shit" might put you off that post. Heh.

Hmmm...wonder if we still have any 10-megaton thermonuclear playthings lounging around somewhere. Might be time to dust them off, polish them to a pretty shine AND USE THEM!!!

Warmonger? ME??? Nah...I think a few 20,000 pound fuel/air weapons wafting down on the afternoon breeze above the dung-ridden, flea-infested ratholes they call cities would cure the problem.

Still...ain't nothin' like a fine young thermo going off on your block to really get your attention.

Yes, 5,000 fornicatin' foreigners and 150,000 mostly Muslim inncoent villagers. Allah is indeed just and merciful.

"fornication and sexual perversion of all kinds are rampant"

Ahh, Thailand. I can't wait to go back.

The "Land of Child Prostitution" gets a moral bath and its because of the 5,000 infidels..........very nice.

wasn't there a blog you linked to that said that "if there was a ghetto of the world, the tsunami cleaned it fuck 'em"? isn't that kind of the same thing?

not all muslims, it's pretty obvious, are peaceful, reasonable people. not all christians or jews or atheists are people. that doesn't mean all of them are irrational.

this just echoes jerry fallwell and pat robertson's famous remarks about the pagans and abortionists and feminists bringing about 9/11. would it have been right to say, all christians are like them?

even if MOST of them are--not ALL of them are.

edit: "are such people". didn't mean to say "are people".

Ahh, Beth, thanks for the moral relativism.

Feel free to point out the hordes of marauding Jews and Christians who are in the streets beheading, raping or castrating Muslims because they are "non-believers".

You are a true dhimmi. May Allah have unprotected anal with you.

I have not taped my nickel to a postcard yet.

I have also about reached saturation with Islam an it's fellow travelers. Though to think on either side of the coin , an act of nature, in this day and age being attributed to the direct devine intervention of a hyper active god (be it Christain , Jewish, Islamic, or Norse bringer of thunder) is crude at the very least. 100's of thousands exist no more...and the waves worried not whether they were believers of any one faith. Just another reason to take all the vertical Islamist- turds (and their counter parts of all other faiths as well) and send them on a one way *express route* trip to their respective maker. And starting by making Mecca a glowing nightlight might not be such a bad idea.

I'd be happier if the nutty Muslims became Methodists and learned to act right. There's quite a stringer of Islamists who worked themselves up into sweat and martrydom now being parbroiled by an ex-associate who wears red long johns and carries a pitchfork.

Not to worry, Beth -- I'm sure it was just a Freudian slip.

Mmm...incandescent lithium deuteride on the Kaaba!
Works for me.

I just love Beth, I bet she doesn't swallow or spit.

Posted by: James Old Guy on January 7, 2005 08:08 AM

well, this is why i don't normally comment.

i get it. pointing out the same issue on another side where it exists is "moral relativism." i guess i think about it differently--i like to call it "making sense."

whereas giving fallwell and co. a pass while ruffling your feathers about islam is not hypocrisy. explain that one to me.

if anyone wants to respond in a way that *doesn't* sexually threaten me, i'd appreciate that, too.

It's rather like Pat Robertson or Jerry Fallwell, or whoever it was, after 9/11 saying that the terrorists acts were God's punishment on the USA for being too liberal and supportive of gays.

Fanatics are fanatics the world over.

Beth, please don't nauseate the polite company by referring to yourself and "sex" in the same comment.

Posted by: McGehee on January 7, 2005 02:49 PM

okay, mcgehee et al., do you have anything to actually *say*, here? any reasonable thought to offer? if you disagree with me, i'm fine with that. but are the insults necessary? this is ridiculous. i didn't flame or insult anyone in my original post, and by my count, it's about my third post ever on this blog. i don't get why you'd respond the way you have. you realize it does nothing to further your opinions...?

Posted by: beth on January 7, 2005 04:22 PM

you know what, don't answer that. obviously you don't want to hear any opinion that disagrees with yours, and the point here has been to make me go away. which i will. it's just too bad--i thought we could have an interesting discussion. my mistake. pardon me.

Posted by: beth on January 7, 2005 04:28 PM

“…treating wimmen like chattel”? For once I have to disagree with you Acidman. They would never stone to death or hang their chattel… that would be just sooo wrong.
